Lifestyle Medicine 


The Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group is an organization that strives to help members learn more about lifestyle medicine, gain exposure to the clinical practice of lifestyle medicine, and to promote lifestyle medicine in the community. We hope to accomplish these goals through hosting speakers, participating in lifestyle medicine conferences, working to develop a nutrition curriculum at EVMS, and community outreach events. 

What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based practice that focuses on six areas to improve health and quality of life: healthy eating of primarily whole-grain, plant-based food, physical activity, management of stress, cessation of smoking, improvement of sleep, and forming and maintaining relationships.
